Jon Hammond Band at XK-5 Organ Debut Hammond Organ USA Party SoundCheck Nashville: Kayleigh Moyer drums, Chuggy Carter congas percussion, Joe Berger guitar, Jon Hammond at the new XK-5 organ - Summer NAMM 2016 fifth Sound Soul Summit Hammond Organ USA co-sponsored by Keyboard magazine and SoundCheck Nashville
LLC, Nashville - Event: "the first public showing of Hammond’s new XK-5
organ and Heritage Series expanded systems, which represent the cutting
edge of technology applied to recreating the precise touch, feel, and sound of the classic Hammond B-3.
Master of Ceremonies "Gregg" Gregory Gronowski fearless leader of Hammond Organ USA did a wonderful job MC'ing the special Hammond party celebrating introduction of the new XK-5 Hammond Organ with a full night of top players on first night of Summer NAMM 2016!
Music Director Mark Prentice will lead a top Nashville-based rhythm
section (Charlie Morgan and Mike Severs) supporting the Hammond Artist
All-Stars, including the living jazz legend Dr. Lonnie Smith, Grammy
nominee Paul Brown, Red Young, Jon Hammond, Peter Gallinari, Kevin
McKendree (Brian Setzer, Joe Bonamassa) and Yates McKendree, the
Reverend Jimmie Smith, and Kim Tibbs. Robby Robinson (musical director
for Frankie Valli) will be on hand, as will Jim Alfredson, Gary Swan,
Christian Matthew Cullen, and this year’s DownBeat Critic’s Choice Poll
winner Brian Charette, and more. It’s very rare that this many
accomplished Hammond organists get to play together, so the excitement
level among the musicians is as high as it is for the audience. It’s
even rarer to experience players from different genres jamming together.
As in past years, some surprise guests are sure to turn up. Four years
after the first Sound Soul Summit, attendees still remember it as a
highlight of their NAMM experience." http://www.HammondCast.com#SummerNAMM#NAMMShow#HammondOrgan
